Lynn Ellington from Aberdeen City Council was crowned the 2017 ASSIST FM School Cook of The Year.
Lynn really enjoyed the competition even with her nerves kicking in on the day. She thought the whole day was brilliant, with a great atmosphere. When she was revealed as one of the top three she was delighted.
Lynn’s told us that her chilli was straight forward as it is something she makes for her children. However, the cupcake was different it did take her a few tweaks to get the balance right with the raspberries.
Lynn’s main aim was to come to the competition with two dishes that were different to what was on the menu, but, also what pupils would like to eat.
Lynn works at Northfield Academy. With just over 600 pupils, Lynn told us that her team was brilliant. The school were great when they heard that Lynn had won. Head teacher Mike Will after I sent Lynn a lovely message back and the school posted Lynn’s success on their Facebook page.
Mike accompanied Lynn to the Townhouse where she was presented an award from Councillor Yvonne Allan, Convener of Communities Housing and Infrastructure, in front of some of her work colleagues.
The best advice Lynn can give to future participants is to simply enjoy yourself!
Lynn Ellington, won the competition with Nicola Ralston, North Ayrshire Council in second place, and
Tracey Biggs, of Scottish Borders Council, coming in third.
